    Ulysse Nardin watches are really a stunning in real life.

    More stunning than what the internet shows us.

    Went to the local dealer and he offer me the blue dial Marine Chronometer for around US$7400.
    He gave me his namecard and contact him should I need any query.

    Look like the local AD really desperate to sell UD watches.

    1. Agree that UN watches are way more impressive in person than in photos. Indeed, I'm surprised you didn't post the photo of one offered...
    The stock photography for UN (and many other brands) is abysmal.

    2. I wouldn't necessarily assume they are desperate to sell them. That price is 30% below MSRP. But MSRP on UN runs high (although this is subjective). My point is that discounts at AD are not uncommon. And UN is often available in GM at 45% off... so here the price is great vs MSRP. But GM stock appears to indicate that plenty of overflow production is available.

    3. While I find UN designs to be unique and bold, the integrated straps and larger sizing may explain why discounts\GM deals are to be had

    The exact some model which i post.
    I'm torn between this and Classico ( US$500 lesser ) but he tell me the chronometer look more "suited" to me.

    The bigger size look okay on me since I'm 1.83m and around 90kg.

    Don't think he was desperate to sell, but was following up in your interest in it. If you told us that he offered multiple $$$ discounts while you were looking at it then I might think he was a bit desperate.....

    They're out of this poor boy's wallet range, but they are beautiful for sure!

    UN makes some beautiful and technically impressive watches, but I admit they’ve never really been on my wish list. Combination of price, size, and competition. I enjoy ogling them though, hard to beat a good Freak.

    Wow! That first blue watch has an amazing dial. I have never seen a richer blue dial.

    Some of their designs are absolutely stunning and others I find to be ridiculous. I particularly enjoyed the Marine Torpilleur and wound up purchasing one on the bracelet. No regrets.

    Never held one but they sure look well made, too bad they have a nasty habit of incorporating date modules in most of the offerings that otherwise would attract me aesthetically . .
